Etisalat Nigeria has reportedly sued MTN Nigeria over practices it claims stifles competition.

BizTechAfrica reports that Etisalat is seeking a review of a decision allegedly taken by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC), allowing 30 per cent differential between MTN’s off-net and on-net retail mobile voice tariffs for its 'Family and Friends' promo.

MTN’s Family and Friends promo offers a flat call rate of 11 kobo per second to 8 MTN subscribers and two non-MTN subscribers, a tariff plan that Etisalat believes poses a serious threat to their survival as a business. Beyond that, Etisalat also claims that the tariff is in violation of NCC’s regulation - the Determination of  Dominance in Selected Communications Markets in Nigeria.

MTN currently leads the telecoms space in Nigeria with over 43% of the total subscriber base. Etisalat on the other hand has only 16% of the market, the lowest of the 'Big 4'.
